Lens Review
Introduction | Prime and moderate telephoto Prime ranking | Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* 2/135 ZF.2 Nikon lens performance | Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* 2/135 ZF.2 Nikon versus competition | Conclusion

The fixed 135mm focal length isn’t as popular as it was once mainly due to lenses like the 70-200mm f/2.8. Nevertheless, fast lenses like this are making a comeback. The Zeiss Apo Sonnar T* is without doubt one of the finest 135mm f2.0 lenses ever produced, and at $2,200, even the price doesn’t seem unreasonable for quality like this.
